Testimonials

Bill payment

„Before working with viacash we had a considerable customer volume and a high load on our service processes, especially at the end of the month. Besides, it came to disruptions in the operation of the vending machine and a relatively high expenditure for monthly statements. With the help of viacash we simplified our customer service. Customers are now familiar with the system and take advantage of different deposit points. The customer service staff now have considerably more time to focus on the important service issues of the customers and to prepare the toolbox for the automatic pay station. The long queue of cash payers at the turn of the month are a thing of the past as well. The solution with viacash is fully developed and has also given us a big advantage relating to the image.“ – Kai Kistenmacher, Stadtwerke Kiel

“The municipal utilities Düsseldorf have been using viacash for several years now. After a test phase for customers who have historically paid at pay stations, we have decided to introduce viacash for all customers in claim management. In retrospective, this was the right decision. Customer acceptance is above average. Additionally, we benefit from increased incoming payments and automated processing of payments resulting in less dunnings.” – Michael Inden, Stadtwerke Düsseldorf

“E.ON Energie Deutschland GmbH has been successfully offering its electricity and gas customers viacash as an alternative to bank deposits for very short-term payments in advance of connection blocks for several years. The instant transmission of payments enables an immediate cancellation of blocking orders with the distribution system operator. The payment slips are sent by post together with all blocking notice letters. We are also offering our customers with blocking notice the preparation of payment slips via our telephone customer service. In addition, our customer at all dunning levels can request payment slips for the dunning amount as a self-service at eon.de/barzahlen.” – Michael Fliege, E.ON
